I generally don't bake on weekdays, mainly due to lack of time. But as I was feeling a little guilty that my poor beloved had been going hungry during the day, I decided to whip up a batch of muffins. They could have done with a little more cinnamon, but overall they were quite nice.
Apple Cinnamon Muffins 300g (2 cups) self-raising flour 150g (1 cup) plain flour 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda 400g can pie apple, coarsely chopped 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 2 eggs, lightly beaten 375ml (1½ cups) milk 190ml (¾ cup) oil
Crumble Topping 1/2 cup self-raising flour 1/4 dessicated coconut 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup rolled oats 70g butter, melted
Grease 16 holes of 2 x 12 hole (1/3 cup capacity) muffin pans. Sift dry ingredients into bowl, stir in apple and sugar, then combined eggs, milk and oil; do not over-mix, batter should be lumpy. Spoon mixture into pans. Sprinkle muffins with the crumble topping.
Bake at 200°C for about 20 minutes or until browned and firm. Stand 2 minutes, remove from pan; cool on wire rack.
Topping - Combine all ingredients in a bowl and use a fork to stir. Add more melted butter if the mixture is too dry.
I have recently been put on a FODMAP free diet by my dietician in order to ease my tummy issues. I am using this blog to keep track of all the wonderful FODMAP free recipes I try and hopefully give other people FODMAP free recipe inspiration.
